BUENAVENTURA G.C. - 12/17/2020: After two consecutive weeks of cancelled outings, one
Mark Vaughan
Mr. Vaughan
due to a scheduling snafu and the other blown away by unplayable wind conditions, The Group welcomed an eager turn-out at BuenaV. Three of the day's top 4 money-winners came from our most recently recruited new members list led by Tony Giapapas who garnered $52 from a solo birdie payout, 1st Places in Super Low Gross and Low Net(tie) and a Partners 3rd Place. Mark Vaughan pocketed $35 after taking 1st Places in both Porter Low Gross & Low Net(tie) and 2nds in Partners & Low Putts(tie). Tom Knickerbocker extracted $32 from a solo birdie and the Porter Gross runner-up spot while another solo birdie effort paid out $26 to Jeff Sable. Surprisingly Brian Oblak, who's usually in the mix, did not mark in the Gross category but did manage to pickup $21 from a 1/2 birdie share, a tie for 2nd Low Putts and Partners 3rd Place. Miguel Romero won the day's Low Putts total by a sizeable 3-shot margin for an even Twenty Bucks reward. Ron Troncatty's $15 take resulted from his Partners 1st Place, Super Gross runner-up, and tie for Low Net 3rd. Also surprising was our lowest handicapper, Burman Deshautelle, earning only $13 from a shared birdie and no other mark. Marilou Miller totaled $11 from her Partners 1st Place finish and tie for Low Net 3rd and the wager pots emptied with a $5 award to Joltin' Joe Cala in Partners 2nd Place.
WESTLAKE G.C. - 12/24/2020: On this cheery Christmas Eve the chilly weather and a smattering of rain sprinkles signaled the arrival of the winter season as our undaunted Group played on. After all the scorecards were turned in and calculated Mark Vaughan absconded with the entire Designated Birdies pot totaling $44 to top the winners list. Just a couple of bucks behind at $42 was Brian Oblak who dominated the scoring with a stunning One-Under-Par 66 gross to capture 1st Places in both Super Low Gross & Low Putts, a tie for 2nd Low Net, a Partners 3rd, AND a shared Blind Birdie. Bruce Simon snared the other half of that birdie booty, 1st Places in both Porter Low Gross & Partners, plus 2nd Place ties in both Low Net & Low Putts for his $39 haul. Pat Gallagher's solo Blind Birdie paid out an even Twenty Bucks. Jimmy Dodds pocketed $17 with the day's Low Net score and a tie for 2nd Low Putts. The Porter Low Gross runner-up spot and a Partners 3rd paid out $9 to Bob Stone while Joe Cala's 1st Place Partners was worth $7. The 2nd Place Partners team, featuring Marilou Miller and Ted Winship, earned $4 apiece and the Super Low Gross runner-up spot sent a final Two Bucks to Tony Giapapas, leaving some half-dozen previous winners unrewarded.
LOS ROBLES GREENS G.C. - 12/31/2020: A very chilly windy day, with Tee Times delayed a 1/2 hour or more by lingering frost on the greens, made for soaring scores and unseemly putting stats for our 19-player "Final Event of 2020" field. For the record the 16 recorded putting totals ranged from a low of 32 to a high of 43 and that averages out to be 38 putts per player! Despite posting that highest putting total, Jim Sabbe still managed to top the money winners list with $87 gleaned from his Porter Low Gross award and the entire Designated Birdies wager pot. Next on the list there was a 3-way tie at $28 each featuring Brian Oblak with 1st Places in Super Low Gross & Low Putts, then Jimmy Dodds and Tony Giaspapas each with a solo Blind Drawn Birdie. The Low Net award was captured by John Moskoff who added a Partners 3rd to his resume for a $23 payout. A pair of 2nd Places in Porter Gross & Low Putts paid out $18 to Tom Knickerbocker while his pal, Pat Gallagher, collected $15 for a Partners 1st Place and Low Net 3rd. We welcomed Mark Kourtjian back on the links after his lengthy 11 month hiatus from our "tour" and promptly handed him $10 for being Low Net runner-up. Ron Troncatty pocketed $7 for Super Gross runner-up and Partners 3rd Place. Bob Stone's only marker was $5 for Partners 2nd and likewise was Mark Vaughan's $3 stipend for Partners 3rd Place.
Gigs & Stuff
Well, for the 2nd straight month we can list some gigs. Last month, the producers of Goliath reached back to their second year archives to bring back Brian Oblak's racist cop to guest star in a fourth year episode. The series could use a resident bad guy as a series regular. Bruce Simon continuing his run with a quick Driving assignment on "The Morning Show" for Apple TV -- We had travelers on the holidays, Brian back to Ohio, RonTron up north for family gatherings -- We have 5 January birthdays to report. Tom Bower on the 3rd, Ted (the younger) Winship the 21st, Ted (the elder) White the 25th, Bob Planck on the 28th, and the Central Valley's own Joe Cala the 29th -- Stay healthy everyone, and let's hope for Happy New Year!
